(July 22–August 23)
After an extended retrograde all summer, Mars, finally direct in your solar opposite of Aquarius after September 12, energizes you to do the hard work of balancing between personal desires and community responsibility. You emerge from the heroic battle transformed, as all heroes are after facing the terrible foe within. In September, you don't need your usual accessories—the bling, the spotlight, the headlines—to make you look good. The garments of unfeigned humility beautify you now, as the inner glow of a grateful heart bathes everything you touch in a beautiful light that others are drawn to bask in.
